Dental Implants

The Gold Standard in Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are one of the most advanced tooth replacement options available today because they mimic the structure of natural teeth in a way that no other dental restoration can. Dental implants allow you to eat, speak, and smile without discomfort or worry about the teeth shifting or moving, as can happen with removable dentures.

Dental Implants Are Made Of Three Main Parts:

Dental Implants | Tooth Works Dentistry

The Implant

The implant itself is a small titanium post that’s surgically inserted into the jawbone. This mimics the root of your natural tooth. Over time, the bone grows around the implant, securing it just as it would a natural tooth root.

The Abutment

The abutment is a small connector that’s attached to the top of the implant and protrudes just above the gum line. The abutment securely holds your new tooth in place.

The Crown

The crown is the visible part of the tooth and is custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. The crown is attached to the abutment, completing the dental implant and making it virtually indistinguishable from a natural tooth.

These three components work together to replicate the function and appearance of a natural tooth, providing the most realistic replacement option. The unique features of dental implants help preserve the jawbone, maintain facial structure, and prevent further tooth loss, making them an excellent long-term investment in your smile and health.

The Dental Implant Process

Getting dental implants might seem complex due to its multi-stage process. At Tooth Works, we guide you through each stage of your transformation, ensuring you feel comfortable and informed.



Consultation and Planning

We begin your dental implant journey with an in-depth consultation. Our expert team will start with a thorough examination and discussion about your oral health, aesthetic goals, and expectations. Leveraging cutting-edge diagnostic tools, we tailor a treatment plan for you, laying the groundwork for your transformation.



Implant Placement

The implant placement is a meticulous process performed under local anesthesia. A titanium post, acting as an artificial tooth root, is surgically inserted into your jawbone, becoming the foundation for your new tooth. We employ top-tier materials and techniques to ensure optimal results.



Healing and Integration

A healing period follows, during which the implant fuses with your jawbone, a process called osseointegration. This stage provides the stability and sturdiness your implant needs to function just like a natural tooth.



Abutment and Crown Placement

Once the implant is fully integrated, we attach an abutment to it, which serves as a connector for the final restoration. We then place a custom-crafted crown, bridge, or denture, designed to match your natural teeth and enhance your smile.

Our Satisfied Patients Say It Best!

Dr. Paman did Botox for my frown lines and forehead. I am so happy with the result. I look refreshed and not over done. Highly recommend treating yourself to her fabulous work!

Erin Wicklund

Dr. Sam & Dr. Pam are fantastic dentists & take special care of their patients. Lisa, the dental hygienist, is truly wonderful. She took the time to explain in detail the options presented to me by the dentists and which option would be best for me. She answered all of my questions & treated me with respect.

Colleen Dec

Dr. Sam’s gentle touch and incredible skill – and he and his team’s remarkable ability to reassure me – led to a calm and pretty much painless root canal experience. No exaggeration. I had no idea dentistry could be so pleasant.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Implants

If you’re embarking on the journey toward dental implants, you’ll have questions. Below are the answers to a few common questions we get from our patients:

Are dental implants as strong as natural teeth?2023-09-04T14:48:14-06:00

Dental implants are designed to be strong and durable, mimicking the strength of natural teeth. Made of biocompatible materials like titanium, implants fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, creating a stable foundation for the artificial tooth. This allows implants to withstand normal biting forces and function like natural teeth. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can provide long-term strength and stability, restoring your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

Will my dental insurance cover the cost of dental implants?2023-09-04T14:47:48-06:00

Dental insurance coverage for dental implants can vary depending on the specifics of your insurance plan. While some dental insurance plans may provide coverage for a portion of the cost, others may not cover implants as they are considered cosmetic or elective procedures. However, it’s important to check with your insurance provider to understand the extent of your coverage. Our knowledgeable team can assist in verifying your insurance benefits.

How should I care for my dental implants?2023-09-04T14:47:22-06:00

Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. It involves maintaining good oral hygiene practices, including brushing twice a day and flossing daily. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are essential to monitor the health of your implants and surrounding tissues. Avoiding tobacco use and practicing a healthy lifestyle contributes to the long-term success of your implants. Our dental team will provide you with specific instructions and guidance on caring for your dental implants to ensure their longevity and optimal oral health.

What makes dental implants better than traditional tooth replacement options?2023-09-04T14:46:58-06:00

Dental implants offer several advantages over traditional tooth replacement options. Unlike dentures or bridges, implants are designed to mimic the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. They provide a sturdy and permanent solution that does not rely on adjacent teeth for support. Implants also help preserve jawbone health by stimulating natural bone growth. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a durable and reliable choice for restoring missing teeth and improving overall oral health.

How long does the entire dental implant process take?2023-09-04T14:46:29-06:00

The timeframe for completing the dental implant procedure varies depending on different factors such as the patient’s oral health, the necessity for further treatment, and the type of implant chosen for the restoration process. On average, the process can take several months to complete. It involves initial consultations, implant placement surgery, a healing period known as osseointegration, and the placement of the final restoration. Our experienced dentists will provide a personalized treatment plan and timeline during your consultation, ensuring a successful and long-lasting result.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?2023-09-04T14:45:21-06:00

Dental implants are an excellent solution for individuals who have one or more missing teeth and are in good overall health. Ideal candidates should have sufficient jawbone density to support the implant and healthy gum tissues. Our experienced dentists will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine your candidacy for dental implants. Factors such as oral health, bone structure, and medical history will be taken into consideration to ensure the success and longevity of your implant treatment.
